what do you do all day?
this is a valid and important question, and one that when we really stop to think about it, not many of us can answer accurately.
keep a record of how you spend your time. you might be surprised at your findings!
there are many ways to do this. here are few ideas you can use and/or combine:
- list: keep a running list of activities and time frames. for example, wake up 8am. shower 8:05-8:20am. breakfast 8:25-8:40am, drive to work 8:45-9:15am, work 9:15-12pm, lunch etc…
- totals: using your list, tally up the hours in your day. do you spend 8 hours sleeping, 8 hours at work and 8 hours doing leisure activities? do you spend 4 hours commuting to and from work? do you spend 6 hours a day watching tv?
- visual chart: create a visual chart of your findings, for example a bar graph or a pie chart.
